The UN has an agenda ---sustainable development goals---and they have a timeline for achieving them which they push hard. They make countries sign treaties and agreements and pledges to achieve the timeline and the monetary goals.
The Pope has an agenda which pretty much mirrors that of the UN.
The leaders of the world have an agenda, including our own president, that also mirrors that of the UN.

There are people, however, that believe in the rule of law, following lawful processes of their own sovereign nations, and adhere to the rights and legal provisions as set out in their Constitution. Scalia (and others) are these kinds of people.

So, when the Pope, the UN Secretary General, and certain presidents and leaders of nations decide what is best for everybody and they put a time constraint on achieving their goals, certain others such as Scalia are bound to get in the way or slow the achievements of their agenda down.

These religious, government, and world order leaders have decided THEY are going to be judge, jury, and executioner because they know sooooo much better than the rest of us. They believe they have a "higher" power and "the ends justify the means". They believe they are entrusted with a mission by virtue of their leadership positions and that mission just so happens to involve lots of $$$$ to line various pockets of the church and others.

They have groups, secret orders, cartels, and loyal minions that have taken oaths to follow their orders and directions. They have taken an oath of silence and are under a code of omertà. Perhaps during their initiation phase, they had to do something that guaranteed they would remain loyal and silent. (BTW...does anybody know what 'riding the stag' means as it pertains to a certain Jesuit university?)

Now, each person in the process will receive either by code, by secret meeting, or by coded images the necessary information to carry out their part of the process. Perhaps the instructions or information is placed on an unsecure server to be easily hacked into. Who knows?

The final hit is done without the top tier probably even knowing who carried it out.

These institutions may have consolidated agendas together, or one may have a particular agenda of his/her own. But, they have players dedicated and under the code of omertà that carry out the means to obtain that particular agenda.

I'm wondering if Scalia wasn't killed in an initiation for someone, a sealing of their code of omertà, in effect killing two birds with one stone....getting rid of somebody in the way and initiating somebody into the Order. Maybe that someone was the one in the other bigger better suite.

These people may believe that they are the "higher power," but someday they will answer to the Lord for what they have done. I would really hate to be in their shoes when that happens.

You know the old saying. Pride goes before a fall. The pompous twits that are in charge of our government (and elsewhere) are in for a rude awakening.

Scripture tells us that the Lord raises kings, and He can bring them down. Including various people that we've been talking about here.

More along the Argentina line of inquiry:

In a prior post I linked an article, and quoted a portion of the article, I noticed today after reading another article an interesting connection:

Former President Cristina Fernandez refused to negotiate with the group of creditors she called "vultures," even after New York federal court Judge Thomas Griesa repeatedly ruled against Argentina.

Argentine president: nation in bad shape but change coming

Which was posted on 03/01/2016

Then we had this happen:

Former Chesapeake Energy Chief Executive Aubrey McClendon, a brash risk-taker who helped transform the U.S. energy industry with shale gas, died when his car slammed into an overpass on Wednesday, one day after being charged with breaking federal antitrust laws, police said. He was 56.

Aubrey McClendon (who has a history of shady business dealings) was involved in this:

Aubrey McClendon is at it again. The founder and former CEO of Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) recently partnered his new private company, American Energy Partners LP, with Argentina's state-run YPF SA (NYSE:YPF) to explore and develop unconventional oil and gas in the South American nation.

And then this happened the same day as the above:

[JURIST] A judge for the US District Court for the Southern District of New York [official website] on Wednesday lifted injunctions [order, PDF] blocking Argentina from paying its restructured debt. According to Judge Thomas Griesa, the circumstances of the situation have changed so significantly [AP report] that the injunction was now detrimental to public interest. Lawyers for a majority of Argentina's creditors requested [CN report] that the judge instate a 30-day delay of the ruling in order to pressure Argentina to negotiate further, which Griesa denied, citing a pressing need or finality. Argentina, which has been blocked from paying holders of its restructured bonds since July 2014, will now be able to make payments. These bond holders are owed more than $3 billion in past due interest.

US judge lifts Argentina bond payment ban

Are these connected to our mystery?

TWO points...
I think this was the opinion written and championed by Scalia.
Those expressing angst, appear to be Argentine anti-poverty religious groups

U.S. Supreme Court “Validates” Vulture Fund Activities

WASHINGTON , Jun 17 2014 (IPS) - The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to reject an appeal by the Argentine government will embolden aggressive “holdout” creditors, anti-poverty groups say, and make it far more difficult to arrive at debt-relief agreements for poor countries.

The move, announced Monday, is a definitive setback for Argentina, which has been battling two U.S. hedge funds for years to allow a major debt-restructuring agreement to go forward. Yet the court’s decision is also being seen as a significant loss for poor countries looking for debt relief.

“I’m still reeling from this news,” Eric LeCompte, executive director of Jubilee USA Network, an umbrella of religious anti-poverty groups, told IPS.

This also could connect with the Aubrey McClendon indictment and suspicious death.
McClendon was securing fracking rights in Argentina.

"Extortion" has always a popular motive for murder.

Argentina Alleges Extortion After Supreme Court Sides with Vulture Funds Preying on Sovereign Debt

We look at a case that is being called the "trial of the century" in how poor countries repay sovereign debt. This week, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal from Argentina over its $1.5 billion debt in a ruling critics say validates predatory behavior by so-called "vulture funds."

The case involves hedge funds that bought up Argentina’s debt at bargain rates after its financial crisis more than a decade ago.

After Argentina defaulted on its debts, the vast majority of its creditors agreed to slash the value of their holdings. But NML Capital and other firms refused to accept the deal, instead seeking full repayment. Monday’s ruling leaves in place a lower court decision ordering Argentina to pay the companies.

Argentine President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner has called the firms’ actions "extortion."
We are joined by Eric LeCompte, executive director of Jubilee USA Network.

List of religious groups against Scalia opinion SCOTUS decision against Argentina:

Below...a rationale of their grievance:

79 Religious and Development Institutions Join SCOTUS Filing in Argentina/NML Capital Case

WASHINGTON, DC - Jubilee USA Network, a religious anti-poverty coalition, along with 78 other religious and development groups filed with the US Supreme Court in the case between Argentina and NML Capital. The Amicus Curiae brief takes the side of Argentina because the precedent of the case impacts predatory behavior on vulnerable populations. The friend-of-the-court brief argues that the case will have a detrimental impact on the poor, undo bipartisan United States debt policy and cause global financial instability. Filers joining Jubilee USA include: American Jewish World Service, Church World Service, Action Aid USA, numerous synagogues and churches across the US and a deluge of Catholic religious orders of nuns and priests. Read the full list of the 79 groups and Jubilee USA's Amicus Curiae.

"At the end of the day, this case is about a precedent that could expose developing economies to extreme predatory behavior," noted Kent Spriggs the attorney representing the 79 groups "The Supreme Court's decision will affirm or harm current bipartisan US debt policy."

The Supreme Court would likely decide by the summer whether or not it will actually hear the case. The case goes back to 2001, when Argentina defaulted on roughly $81 billion in debt. Multiple hedge funds purchased debt for pennies on the dollar. These hedge funds are called "vulture" funds because they prey on countries in financial distress and target assets that benefit poor populations. The nearly 93% of bondholders who restructured their debts with Argentina have seen the value of their bonds increase. The holdout hedge funds that are suing Argentina refused the deal several times and have instead sued for the full amount of the debt they purchased.

The Amicus brief quotes expert economists and lawyers, the International Monetary Fund, studies on debt, Adam Smith, Pope John Paul II and scriptures holy to Christians and Jews. "Our Supreme Court brief starts like a prayer, becomes a doctoral thesis summary and ends like a sermon," said Eric LeCompte, Executive Director of Jubilee USA Network. "This case will impact millions of poor people around the world and they deserve a hearing."

In addition to Jubilee USA and its partners, Brazil, Mexico, France and Nobel Laureate and former World Bank chief economist Joseph Stiglitz have announced their intention to file on behalf of Argentina. In addition to the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank has strongly criticized the behavior of these hedge funds, and the United States government has sided with Argentina in a related case before the Supreme Court. The international consensus against this behavior mirrors the bipartisan consensus around the very debt relief policy threatened by the actions of these predatory funds.

The brief powerfully examines the impacts of the case on future debt restructurings, poverty and the international financial system. The following are quotes pulled out from Jubilee USA Network's friend-of-the-court brief as submitted for filing:

"Because using law to dispossess the poor for the pleasure of the powerful offends not only the sense of justice embodied in United States policy, but the even more ancient principles of biblical justice revealed in the scriptures of our faiths, we respectfully submit this amicus curiae brief requesting that the Court accept certiorari."

"The threatens to unravel United States debt relief policy and undo much of the progress made on behalf of the poor."

"The presence of even a single holdout can deter otherwise cooperative creditors from agreeing to restructure a country's debt...the...decision below would make holding out and suing...the most rational strategy for creditors."

"Allowing the decision below to stand would...equip financial companies that prey on the poorest nations and people of the world with a game-changing legal precedent to accelerate their predation."

"If allowed to stand, the decision in this case...has the potential to generate systemic risks in the international system."

"Upholding the decision...would harm or frustrate numerous established policies of the United States...[that] began during the Bush administration and have been continued by the Obama administration.

I'm trying to follow this Argentina trail, but...damn!!...other things/people keep interrupting and causing me to lose my focus! LOL...

This caught my eye though.

In a seven-to-one decision (with one Justice not taking part), the Court ruled that investors who bought bonds that went into default and never drew any pay from Argentina can get access to a potentially wide array of bank records to locate financial assets overseas that those investors might be able to seize as compensation.

And, without comment, the Court cleared the way for those same investors to demand payment on the bonds they hold whenever Argentina makes any payments to holders of later bond issues which that country has continued to honor. At this point, it is not clear when that opportunity would actually occur, as a practical matter, because Argentina has some legal maneuvers still available and there has been some talk of a potential settlement deal.

After weeks of anticipation about how the Court would deal with the long-running legal fight over Argentina’s debts to foreign investors, the Justices took what well may be decisive action on both that government’s obligations to those investors and the options open to those investors to find out where Argentina keeps its money, around the globe — an initial step toward going after some of those assets.

Some people/institutions may not want others to know where Argentina is hiding money!!! Maybe that explains all the visits to and from Argentina in recent days by some of the players we've mentioned in this thread.

This could also be connected to the pressure the Vatican is currently under to open it's files regarding Argentina.
Could the Vatican bank be maintaining accounts for Argentina?
Remember the death of the Pope's secretary?

Regarding the Supreme Court decision for debtors having access to bank records...that was Scalia again (I posted this earlier).

As I understand it, a couple of years ago, a decision also allowed 'Vulture funds to buy up Argentine debt for pennies on the dollar. This was under the previous Socialist left-wing government.

Argentina Pays Paul Singer's "Vulture Fund" $2.4 Billion

Meanwhile, new details have emerged about this week’s settlement between Argentina and billionaire Republican Party donor Paul Singer’s hedge fund Elliott Management. Elliott Management was one of many U.S. hedge funds to buy up Argentine debt at pennies on the dollar amid the country’s economic crisis in 2001.

Former Argentine President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner had long demanded the hedge funds, which she called "vulture funds," renegotiate the debt, arguing they were unfairly profiting off Argentina’s economic crisis.

THIS was the Argentine President Hillary Clinton was investigating as Secretary of State...who was later ousted from power with help from the U.S government.

What resulted was:

But this week, President Mauricio Macri’s right-wing government agreed to pay Singer’s fund and three others $4.65 billion. Singer’s fund itself netted $2.4 billion—10 to 15 times

As a result of the change of government in Argentina and a SC decision led by Scalia...many powerful people in the U.S made LOTS of $$$ on these 'vulture funds'.

I can't help but wonder if Hillary Clinton or the Clinton foundation was one of these benefactors.

I think you're on to something there.

Which next leads me to wonder if this is somehow connected:

Argentina is now where myths, rumors and historical facts of that time collide. The stories say Nazis arrived by rubber dinghies off the coast of Patagonia, bedraggled from the long journey. The stories say crates of Nazi gold hit the beaches, then vanished into the foggy Andes Mountains. The stories say Hitler himself found new life in an Argentine idyll, “doddering peacefully in the Andean foothills attended by faithful Nazi servants.”

Secret Nazi hideout believed found in remote Argentine jungle

Or am I getting too far afield?
